I watched the briefing live on a Turkish channel and it has to be said, that Erdogan is shaken a little with the uprising, despite his departure to Tunisia today to try and give the impression that he is not worried at all. Erdogan was taken to task by a Turkish female reporter, I belive from Paris Reuters division, over and over again, whereas many male reporters, a.k.a "pussy whipped" reporters, showed very little courage to confront Erdogan. Erdogan did not have his usual "charm and appeal" as if to say, "look how great I am". No, he is definitely shocked. He even stated that the rioters were trying to undermine "Democracy". I guess the protesters have decided to finally get off Erdogan's "democracy bus", because it's wheels had fallen off long time ago and that it's not going anywhere, because that's the way Erdogan likes it.

On a separate note, Bagis and VP have been very quite in the last few days, as if they have been living in a cave somewhere. :D

He’d rather surrender in Geneva and get EU rights than risk getting lynched by Turks.

Turkish PM gets into row with Reuters reporter over Taksim protests

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan argued today with Reuters reporter Birsen Altaylı about the seven-day long Taksim Gezi Park protests, accusing her of misinforming her agency about the situation in the country.

“Don’t tell me that all of society [is supporting the protests], I will not believe it,” Erdoğan told the reporter. “There might be extensions of ideological structures [behind the protests]. This might have gotten them to revolt. You have to see that. What haven’t we done in this country that [led the protesters to] take such a step?” said Erdoğan.

Altaylı also asked the prime minister whether more protesters were coming out onto the streets because he had underestimated their strength.

Erdoğan replied, asking what he could do to moderate the protests. “If you can tell me [what to do], I’ll do it,” he said.

“There is 50 percent of [the country who voted for the ruling Justice and Development Party - AKP], and we can barely keep them at home [and prevent them from coming onto the streets for counter-protests]. But we have called on them to calm down,” the prime minister said after Altaylı said the people on the ground did not represent any single party and that they included students and housewives, unlike Erdoğan’s claims.

After the Reuters reporters said the people on the ground had demands about education and recent alcohol restrictions, Erdoğan said he had seen no demands about education and accused Altaylı of misinforming her agency about the situation.

Before Altaylı’s question session with the prime minister, she had 195 followers on Twitter, but the number exploded to more than 54,000 shortly after the argument.

The protests were triggered last week when a group of people were exposed to gas and water cannon as they attempted to prevent the construction of a shopping mall in a park on Taksim Square.

Gosh .... Bagis the Clown is harder to find than VP nowadays...

... but have found him.

...Giving another stand-up performance in response to the criticism from the Euro Commission on the events of the past few days.

Bagis says we should not "misinterpret" the situation in Istanbul.

What's there to "misinterpret" about nearly 2,000 arrests, hundreds injured, two reported lost lives, the worst excesses of "police" brutality we've seen in decades...???

... what's there to "misinterpret" about several cities in Turkey engulfed in revolt and CS Gas...???

What a Clown...!!!

This from euractiv.com...

The European Commission voiced concern about the issue as early as Friday. "We condemn all excessive and disproportionate use of force," the Commission said in a statement to the newspaper Today's Zaman.

“We recall the importance of guaranteeing fundamental rights, including freedom of expression and freedom of assembly. Any limitations should be strictly within the limits as defined by the ECHR and the jurisprudence of the ECHR,” the statement read.

Enlargement Commissioner Štefan Füle, who is due to visit Turkey on Thursday and Friday for a conference on EU affairs, tweeted that he is “concerned by the images from Taksim Square”. He supported the call for restraint by the Turkish President Abdullah Gül.

Egemen Bağış, the Turkish minister for European Affairs, criticised the Commission's statement, saying Brussels should not "misinterpret" the situation in Istanbul, according to state-run Anatolian news agency.

Bağış claimed that the protestors were “marginal groups” who are “against European values”, reported İhlas news agency.

good one ^ :D So many clowns.

Back to delusional Erdogan ...

Erdogan warned protesters against taking the country's political disputes on to the streets, signalling he could mobilise his mass popular support to crush the demonstrations. ..... "There is 50% and we can barely keep them at home. But we have called on them to calm down."


And from paranoid Erdogan ...

The prime minister blamed the sudden eruption of protest against him on unspecified foreign powers or elements. "Our intelligence work is ongoing," he said. "It is not possible to reveal their names … We shall be discussing these with them and will be following up, in fact we will also settle accounts with them."


The reality ...

In remarks that are likely to provoke Erdogan, the US secretary of state, John Kerry, said: "We are concerned by the reports of excessive use of force by police. We obviously hope that there will be a full investigation of those incidents and full restraint from the police force."

:lol: :lol: :lol: What, in Turkey? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ask any journalist, general, or anyone else if they think a 'Full Investigation' will take place.

You couldn't make this stuff up, bloody hell it's a joke. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I notice that VP has not said a word in all of this, come on Erdal speak up.

“Turkish PM Erdogan sees himself leading 'Turkish Spring'”

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/06/ ... 5720130603

Horror thought! :shock:

Imagine if Erdogan had a veto in EU affairs!

It would destroy the EU in these early stages. Much like the veto the TCs had that destroyed Cyprus in its early stages.

Hang on, the only ones still wanting Turkey in the EU are the UK...
